Jessica Harrison made a decision to go back to school at the age of thirty-seven. Her six children were all in school, and it was time for her to complete her long-range life goals. When looking for the optimum location for her education, she found herself drawn to online opportunities. As a busy mother of six children, she needed to be able to balance her family responsibilities with her career aspirations. Of all the universities offering online programs she considered, Argosy University was the clear winner. The unique degree, a Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology, was exactly what Jessica wanted to add to her future law degree and to her goal of becoming a criminal attorney. The solid reputation of Argosy University confirmed to Jessica that she had found her school.
The Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology has added a dimension of understanding and expertise to Jessica's law aspirations. Argosy's forensic psychology program has given her a clear understanding of human behavior, the criminal justice system and the role of psychology in the psycho-legal environment.
The online structure that Argosy has developed for this degree is comprehensive. Jessica signs on during the day when her children are at school or late at night after they have gone to bed. She is still able to run them to school, participate in field trips and plan class parties. She still fixes dinner, helps the kids with homework and tucks them into bed every night. The flexibility that Argosy's online degree program provides is ideal for her lifestyle and allows her to maintain all of the things that are important in her life.
She finished her degree this March 2010, and Jessica is already looking to the future. She plans to attend law school in the fall of 2011, and she knows with her Argosy University Master of Arts in
Forensic Psychology she will be prepared for the criminal legal environment. Jessica is eager to utilize the skills she has acquired and thankful she found Argosy.
